I need to know how many case fans (or fans total) can be supported by the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard, and if the total fan headers include the CPU Noctua NH-U12A 60.09 CFM CPU Cooler fans.


I plan to use the Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans which come in pairs per order/purchase. I am not water-cooling the build it'll be used with. The case I'm using is the Fractal Design Meshify S2 ATX Mid Tower Case which claims to support 9 fans. Ideally, I'd like to support 1 back case fan, 3 top case fans and 3 front case fans, less ideally perhaps 1 back case fan, 2/3 top case fans, and 2/3 front case fans.


Just a bit of overview, I have no ethernet wall plug in my room thus must use an AC wifi motherboard, hence the MSI above. I plan not to have to upgrade for a few years, hence I want the cooling to be as many fans as possible for hopefully longevity sake. Not to mention dust is a concern in my room so I figure more fans will help.
